Just gave a talk to 1,000+ people about The Industries of the Future and a key message from me was if you want to have a future-focused business that includes emotional intelligence, creativity and a healthy work environment, do all that you can to make sure you have a female-friendly workplace that empowers and respects women. #shemeansbusiness
